The 33-year-old 19 And Counting star looked worse for wear as he emerged from Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Thursday.

Sporting baggy jeans, Duggar left his red and white checkered button-up untucked and kept his head down as he made his way past shutterbugs, who were waiting outside of the jail to get the first shots of the disgraced TLC star.

Wearing a mask over his mouth for protection, Duggar looked unkept and scruffy with an unshaven beard and messy hair.

On Wednesday, a judge granted Duggar's request to be released from jail until his June 6 trial begins but he can't go home to his pregnant wife, Anna Duggar, and his six children.

The ex-reality star has been required to stay with third-party custodians.

As Radar reported, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's squeaky clean church friends stepped up to the plate and are allowing Josh to live with them.

Despite authorities allegedly finding 200 images of child pornography -- some including children as young as 5 years old -- on Josh's confiscated computer, LaCount Reber and his wife Maria are opening their doors to Josh but his stay comes with restrictions. 

The duo must remove all firearms from the house and any minor who comes to take music lessons from their 22-year-old daughter must be accompanied by an adult, reports Daily Mail.

While Duggar is permitted to communicate with minors, he has "unlimited contact" with his children as long as Anna is present. 

He is also not allowed to access the Internet, which is easy because LaCount and Maria only have dial-up.

Duggar is required to wear an ankle monitor bracelet too.

Duggar was arrested on April 29 on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography, to which he pled not guilty. 

If found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in prison. 

These aren't the only stomach-turning allegations Duggar has been hit with in his lifetime.

In 2015, he was accused of sexually molesting five underage girls -- including four of his sisters and a babysitter -- when he was just 14 years old. 

Hours prior to his hearing, one of his sisters Jinger Duggar put on a brave face and made an appearance at her book signing.
